, foreign policy and defense reporter for politico. tim, good morning. what do you expect romney to focus on in his speech at the virginia military institute on monday? >> yeah. the virginia military institute speech is going to focus primarily on foreign policy. it's going to be a big, broad speech about what he would do as commander in chief, and you can expect him to go straight to benghazi, to go straight to what he views as the president's inability to kind of take an aggressive foreign policy stance on the global stage. no doubt he is going to mention veterans, and i think he will also see him talk about his plan to raise defense spending. up to 4% of gdp, which is higher than it is even now. >> this is certainly about posturing, about sounding presidential, but how does this compare to president obama's last major foreign policy speech, the one that he maude at the united nations general assembly? >> it's going to be quite different. i mean, the president is probably more conciliatory and mitt romney is going to take a more aggressive tone towards arab states. he is going to ramp u
and individual rights and not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. because what that does, when we show -- when we look weak, our enemies are much more willing to test us. and our allies are -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? >> nothing he said is accurate. >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this is a president who has gone out and done everything he had said he was going to do. this is a guy who repaired our alliances so the rest of the world follows us again. this is a guy who brought the entire world, including russia and china to bring about the most devastating, mo
squad weighs in. defense sec take panetta says the risk of a cyber attack is all too real. >> nobel prizes and chocolate? is connection. good morning. i'm lynn berry, this is "first look" on msnbc. >>> joe biden and paul ryan went head-to-head in their only face-off. they clashed on almost two issues. who won? two polls gave two different views. one showed ryan 48% to 44% ahead. cbs news' flash poll gave biden the win with 50% compared to 31% for ryan and 19% called the debate a tie. for a look at some of the highlights, we go to steve handelsman at the debate sight in danville, kentucky. good morning. >> reporter: good morning from danville, kentucky where they differ sharply on practically all the big issues. these are smart, well informed politicians. paul rye yand and joe biden had reason to feel good last night. a long time democratic insider versus a republican young gun whose ticket has new momentum. mitt romney was watching, barack obama, too. the moderator from abc. they tangled on iran. >> they are closer to a nuclear weapon. >> we will not allow the iranians to get a nucl
. his team includes over a dozen former advisers to president bush. in fact, bush's defense secretary, donald rumsfeld, called romney's speef, terrific, comprehensive speech. our latest poll shows that america's people don't buy romney as commander in chief. he trails the president on that 47 to 39%. and he trails the president by 6% on foreign policy. for decades, republicans have had the edge over democrats when it comes to national security but thanks to this president's strength and romney's weakness, that trend is over. joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and an msnbc political analyst and brian, a senior fellow at the american for progress. thanks to both of you for being here. >> thanks, reverend. >> richard, let me start with you. what is the biggest failure in romney's foreign policy attacks? >> the biggest problem mitt romney has is not debating the president, it's debating himself. this is all consistency of a split pea soup. is he for mission creep and won't set an end date. he's on every side of his foreign policy position bu
in interviews and not sure she should be getting that defensive. that's for other people to do. she should be above the fray. >> i would love to interrue her, but with all due respect, she might say i know what i'm doing because after the alleged rebellion with tag and politico.com reported on her husband has at least seen some improvement in the numbers so while, you know, we read the articles, we are journalists and pundits or whatever the case may be, she perhaps believes she knows better for her husband and why she's chosen to be the attack dog and i don't like using that word in reference to any woman but she is going out attacking. >> clearly she feels that way. i learned the other day that she was the first wife of a presidential candidate to ever appear on "meet the press" which i was fascinated with. i don't know how that came about. if she insisted on it or she did or the campaign did. but i think that's really interesting that they feel that she's that effective whereas with michele obama, you know, she is doing stuff mostly off the radar. she's exciting the base. she's going ou
. >> criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, cnn legal contributor. hello, ba paul. >> good morning, carol. surely the judge has heard this, do you think? >> oh, yes. the drama last night when networks were trying to figure out if this was for real or a prank. people were shocked that he would submit this to a college radio station. a lot of us were worried that this might be aa college prank but it is for real. >> how will it factor into his decision? >> he will look at a 45-count indictment and conviction. he will look at the fact that there are ten boys who were sexually abused over a 15-year period and also sandusky's background a. when this tape comes up, the context will be -- lot of times a judge will look at the defendant and say does he feel sorry for the crime he committed? has ahe committed himself to rehabilitating himself? number one he blames the judge because the trial came too fast and blames a huge conspiracy which consists of lawyers, prosecutors, psychologists to convict him of this crime. finally, and most startingly, he blames the victims, the boys who brought t
. here is joe biden calling ryan out -- i think this is on the defense cuts. >> we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that done when we equivocate on our values -- >> bill: get in there. >> they are much more willing to test us. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of mularkey because everything he said was not true. >> bill: paul ryan came across as inexperienced and very very nervous. did you notice how many times he kept sipping water, like get me out of here. obviously a lot of his lines were rehearsed. he was not natural or uncomfortable at all. ryan said, mitt romney is a car guy. yeah, his father was the head of a car company, but he wanted detroit to die. >> to be fair mitt romney is a car guy. he has so many cars he needs an elevator for them. >> bill: and he said let me tell you about mitt romney he helped people who were injured in a car crash. and basically joe biden turned to him and said don't talk to me about car crashes, buddy. my wife and son were killed in a car crash. so ryan didn't have such a good night
explain it. in my defense, the apes wanted me to do that so i did it. they told me they wanted me to do it. how? i can't even begin to explain and i did not have to smear anything on myself. that's a plus. because really, it's all about maintains one's dignity. that does it for us. see you again one hour from now. another edition of "360" at 10:00 eastern. "piers morgan tonight" starts now. >>> tonight, game on. the new mitt romney now in the lead. a confident candidate, a major speech. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east but hope is not a strategy. >> plus, neck and neck. sometimes it is about the horse race. to the man who arguably knows more than anyone about what the numbers in this race mean, nate silver. and battleground america. is romney gaining ground with female voters? women on the left and right go toe to toe. also, worldwide exclusive. what you haven't heard about the man who shot trayvon martin, the first television interview with george zimmerman's mother. why he says there's more to the story. >> he said you will die tom
and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it
. as i think more though the defense spending difference is actually important. here i take the president's side. governor romney has suggested the president's defense cuts would be excessive, but i think they have been fairly thoughtfully presented so >> jennifer: well, there is an -- there's -- i want to ask you about iran too in addition. would mitt romney for example be more likely to allow israel to strike first, iran if they are not satisfied with the -- you know the red line? >> that's -- that's the sort of body language and also the language that governor romney used this summer where he did suggest that israel has the ability to make the decision itself. i by the obama administration has been more his important to give israel any such green light. i think both have said an nuclear weapon is unacceptable but where you may see a little bit more difference is romney may be inclined earlier to bless a israel decision to use force or participate in it in himself. i think it's an important nuance. >> jennifer: very quickly what further sanctions
on their pitching and defense. >>> back in the top of the second, oakland outfield coco crisp makes a leaping grab to rob a would-be home run by prince fielder. >>> well, to football now, nfl commissioner roger goodell reduced the bounty related suspensions of two new orleans saints players. linebacker scott fujita's three game suspension has been reduced to one. and defensive end anthony hargrove's eight game penalty has been trimmed to seven. >>> felix baumgartner's death defying sky dive from 23 miles above earth has been postponed due to gusty winds. so we will keep you posted on that. what is up with that? gusty winds? hey, i know who to ask about that. bill karins. you know all about gusty winds. >> hot air balloons -- >> get it? >> i do, i do. full of hot air. yeah. one of us. if you're in new england today, bring the umbrella. light rain and showers. eventually all of this rain back here from detroit to north will sweep through new york state and northern thunk. so a period of some rain as the cold front slides on through. it will be another gray day out there. temperatures aren't all that
department at the defense department, to make sure that the critical issues are brought to the president's attention. this was obviously a very high-risk posed and, indeed, it was opposed where al qaeda killed our ambassador. the entire national security staff to list? biggest if so and his comments seemed to indice that the maid is the state department's responsibility alone, want to know what is going to the mind of diligence and right now and, perhaps an even more importantly what is going to the mind of bill clinton that his boss, secretary has just been determined the bus. lou: well, the author of the book, the best seller, new york times best selling but the amateur on the obama administration today writing for the daily caller saying that he is aware now of a rift that has broken out between the clintons and the obama lighthouse and much of that divide has been created by the way in which the secretary of state has been treated in this -- in what is now becoming , one could say a controversy, a scandal in benghazi. >> there is a lot to go around. that is for sure. part of it comes
, with all due respect, we have far more advanced defense systems here in the united states than anywhere else in the world. we have a lot more intellectual property to protect on that front. >> intellectual property is something hauwei values greatly. we are the world leader in terms -- >> that's not the spirit of my question. you say they operate throughout europe. they operate throughout asia. those countries -- europe does very little in the way of its own defense, et cetera. we are the primary drivers of defense spending in the entire world. we have a lot more to protect. so, to say they're doing business in europe doesn't answer the concerns of the united states. >> i'm not sure what the connection is there. hauwei sells commercial telecommunications infrastructure. this is the plumbing through which internet traffic takes place. we don't operate any networks. the gear they deploy is built to the same global standards as our competitors and all of it is being developeded and coded and built in china to a great extent. there are vulnerabilities, but they are universal. and anyone tha
pedophile and former defensive coordinator is speaking out from jail. he was convicted in june of sexually abusing ten boys over 15 years and tomorrow he will find out whether he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars. but today, in an extraordinary move, sandusky released a statement in his own words which aired on penn state radio. he denies the abuse, blames the victims and proclaims his love for his wife. you've really got to hear this. to even try and believe it. >> in my heart, i know i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. my wife has been my only sex partner and that was after marriage. our love continues. the young man whose dramatic, veteran accuser and always sought attention started everything. he was joined by a well orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, penn state, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. they won. i've wondered what they really won. attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary. >> and on and on he whines in similar vein. frankly, that's enough for me. i don't have the stomach for any more of this and i'm s
to the wood shed on wanting to spend more on defense budget, on wanting to perhaps be more active in syria. he you the ut terd the same lin heard. the notion of dumping more money into defense and also at least giving a veiled threat of more action in syria is enough to scare a lot of people who are war weary and sick of it. >> agree. i think rand paul reflects that sentiment inside and outside of the party. there are more traditional republicans going back 30, 40 years of looking at these things more objectively, looking at the costs and all of that. that's going to be an ongoing battle. i think tonight to your point, gene, that what the congressman has to do is not jump on this whole issue in a way that comes off partisan keeping in mind your point that a life -- many lives were lost, four lives were lost, and that to be sober in challenging the administration's position. >> that particularly -- >> >> is smarter politics. >> particularly important for him. >> and it's even important because the man at the top of the ticket has criticized the foreign policy of the obama administration but thr
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
had been on such an offensive all of a sudden has to be on defensive and he doesn't handle it very well. >> john: there were several things that hart didn't handle very well. >> he was reeling and we came right back in which was the red phone. >> most powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> john: they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was style and not substance. >> vote as the future of the world is at stake. >> john: decades later. your children are safe and asleep. >> hillary clinton's use the same theme to attack barack obama. >> in this case it was barack obama. we said to gary hart it's 2:00 in the morning. yeah, did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> john: it's more likely to be a direct attack. americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing states they now run all the time. >> if you are hearing me approve this message, believe me so am i. >> i'm barack obama, eye i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> john: however, most of you won't see those messages. you have been excluded. i'll
, they go against each other again sometime. fox news alert. israel stepping up its military defense just 48 hours after a mystery drone penetrated airspace. planes shot down aircraft over the weekend. israel is blaming the lebanese militant group hezbollah. and ruling out a missile base in her florida with that country. we leadbetter has the latest. reporter: we are very concerned about this new drone. it shows a whole new level of sophistication over the horizon. that drone had to fly at hundreds of miles to get all the way here. the israeli air force intercepted the drone and shot down. they had to scramble a couple of writer just in order to do that, and they later said it was a reconnaissance drone. hezbollah has used explosives in the past. you can see where the drone flew in, over the gaza strip and to the north, the important part is where that patriot missile battle is in the city of haifa. over the land border or by the sea. lebanon television, which is based by hezbollah and supported by hezbollah, said that the iranian group is behind it. but they are saying it shows the weakness
on the head. paul ryan had a solid performance but he was always on defense. >> in terms of who dominated the debate, joe biden dominated. >> the key to winning one of these debates is to lower speculation expectations about your speaking skills and joe biden's been doing that for four years. >>> retired space shuttle "endeavour" is on its final journey this morning. >> to its final home at the california science center. >>> nobel peace prize of 2012 is to be awarded to the european union. >> got out of hand during a debate of veteran congressmen forced to run against each other. >>> can you imagine finding this? a giant eyeball. the discovery has marine biologists and all of us completely stunned. >>> detroit tigers are headed to the american league championship series and a swing and a miss. san francisco giants will advance to the nlcs. >> all that -- >> what happened? did you lose something? >> my buddy, joe biden for just making stuff up. >> used poor judgment when it published pictures of the vice presidential nominee pumping iron just hours before last nig
when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"
years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think that the thing that makes people uncomfortable about him as a potential commander in chief is this sense of a lack of compass. where exactly would he lead. he doesn't seem to know that. >> the only dif
. sandra: charlie, you see reason to play defense into the upcoming election. in fact, you say there is a way to say if romney wins or if president obama wins. what would that exactly be if there was various outcomes to the election, obviously? >> i think the chances are that capital i believe pretty much on strike for most of this year is going to see the potential for better economy, the first year of any administration doesn't tend to be that good of a year for the market or the economy. the market would definitely see the possibility to come off the sideline in the later part of next year into 2014. your previous guest talking about how a win for obama pretty much has been discounted, but if you see it, it'll be capital sitting on its hands for the next four years. david: if in fact obama wins the election, fiscal cliff is resolved, therefore you think all this cash, we are seeing great market again, but it has been on low volumes. the thing that would change into flooded the market? >> yes, i do. even more importantly is for romney to reverse obamacare. for small and midsi
delivered a spirit defense of conservative strategies proposed by the romney campaign. how several newspapers and w websites are describing the debate this morning. it was rapid fire. it was lively. mply put, it was hard to turn away from. i agree with that. maryland governor martin o'malley joins me now. good morning, mr. o'malley. how are you doing? >> i'm doing well, don. thank you. the vice president went out there and did what he needed to do and a lot of people are energized to see him on such an aggressive and needed calling out of the falsehoods and shell games that these other guys are proposing. >> i know you have some pull. can you talk to some folks and say one more, at least, vice presidential debate, please? that was the most interesting television i think i have seen in a very, very long time. regardless of what you think about, you know, what was actually said. it was great to watch. >> you know, i enjoyed it. i think the moderator also did a very good job. she allowed them to get into it. she allowed them to draw the contrast between the failed policies that paul r
, we hear time and time again there will have to be cuts across the board, that defense is one of the big areas, bowles-simpson targeted defense i think something as the third biggest issue that needs to be addressed. do you think that we can cut the defense budget or at least maintain, keep it steady, not increase that budget, and still keep the globe safe? >> well as you know we've already been implementing $460 billion in defense cuts. there are other savings that could be made in defense. cost overruns in these weapons acquisitions is a scandal, the least noticed enormous scandal there is in america today when you look at the costs of things like the f-35 and our latest aircraft carrier with these cost plus contracts, but there are savings, but it can't be done with a medax which is what sequestration does. the secretary of defense said it would devastate our national security. senators, republican and democrat, we have asked the president to sit down with we tried this super committee and that's how we got sequestration. everybody was so sure that they would come to an agr
't sort of who started it. the question is, what did he do? did he punch? and remember, his defense is now saying, this wasn't self-defense. they're saying he was purely a victim. his girlfriend is down on the ground. he, quote, extends his arm. and a police officer comes from behind him. and the next thing he knows, he's getting tased and hit with batons and, et cetera. his lawyer is portraying him as a victim here. >> how does the defense combat the police officer's words against his client's words? >> it's tough for the defendant. the videotape is going to be very important. in cases where there's a videotape, you start seeing the analysis go frame-by-frame. every movement that occurred on the videotape, if it ultimately goes to trial, becomes absolutely crucial. you have eyewitnesses, other police officers. there are a lot of people there. you have a lot of potential eyewitnesses. and a videotape. >> and potentially more arrests in this case. >> the investigation is ongoing. >> dan abrams, thanks so much. we appreciate it. >>> time, now, for the weather and sam champion. >> amy, when y
clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more important debates in american history and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and
was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and mitt romney, and then suddenly everything seems to have turned on its head. you're in a unique position because you've debated against both mitt romney and barack obama. interestingly, romney is believed from the latest polls to have won 67% to 25%. when you went head to head with obama in 2008, th
this saber rattling there would be a real cost to that. >> couple that with the defense spending america does not want more war and you're the party supposed to be trimming spending and want to establish a 4% floor for defense spending. >> totally critique for obama somehow he's soft. feels in the end that they're still pandering to their base when they talk about foreign policy and agree, martha raddtz pressed him on syria and iran he wasn't able to propose any real alternative to the administration policy and that's pretty damming omission. >> the logic of their position is more troops but they can't go there. >> right. >> they're kind of stuck in this limbo. >> it's semi illogical. coming up, it was the first question of the night, will it continue to be a thorn in obama's side. how does the u.s. -- the attack on the u.s. consulate factor in in the next three weeks. we will ask chris hayes when he joins the panel just ahead. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help
